CityPASS Chicago offers a first-rate spring-break experience in America's “Second City.” One online purchase secures five famous Chicago attractions discounted to nearly half the regular combined admission price, making it possible to enjoy Chicago with pals and family – without breaking the bank.

Chicago's top-draw attractions – The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, Museum of Science and Industry, and a choice of either the John Hancock Observatory or Skydeck Chicago (formerly known as the Sears Tower) – are assembled in one easy-to-use and dramatically discounted ticket booklet. Chicago CityPASS retails for $69, adult (a value of $134.62); $59, youth, ages 3-11 (a value of $114.50).

Built in a dramatic, imposing style for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, the Museum of Science and Industry is a touch-and-feel, see-and-do, scratch-and-sniff experience – full of big-dreamers' planes, trains and science labs.

At the Shedd Aquarium, kids and adults uncover the mysteries of the sea. Here, 32,500 animals that swim, crawl and soar can be seen in the captivating central tank and surrounding galleries. Dolphin and beluga whale shows in the aquarium’s recently remodeled and expanded (2009) Oceanarium regularly pack the house. And who doesn’t like to play with water? In the Polar Play Zone area, kids age 2-7 can roll up their sleeves and dip into touch pools to feel the rough texture of scratchy sea stars.

Explore space – still the final frontier – at the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd’s neighboring attraction. Highlights include two planetariums, the restored Gemini 12 spacecraft flown by Captain Jim Lovell and Buzz Aldrin, and the 3-D Universe Theater.

For the daredevil in all of us, Chicago CityPASS doesn’t disappoint. There's a breathtaking four-state sweep of land and lake, an outdoor Skywalk, and an invitation to linger over a free cup of coffee at the John Hancock Observatory. Or, accept a double dare to tiptoe onto the 103rd glass-floored lookout of the Willis Tower Skydeck Ledge to peer down 1,430 feet (gulp!) and gaze out 50 miles on a clear day.

Chicago CityPASS can be purchased online at citypass.com or at any of the Chicago CityPASS attractions. It is valid for nine consecutive days, beginning with the first day of use.

As a premier product for travelers who crave savings, convenience and a well-defined means to discovering a city’s leading attractions, CityPASS is an ideal bargain for both first-time and experienced travelers. The CityPASS concept showcases the best attractions in North America’s most exciting destinations at an incredible discount. CityPASS ticket booklets are available for New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto.
